Liberals don't know how to rally and/or protest like civil, law-abiding adults, so they incorrectly assume their opposition protests the same way they do. It's a classic case of projection.

As Lincoln emerged from the telegraph office into the rain-soaked street in Springfield, Illinois he lost his balance when his foot slipped on the slick boardwalk. Catching himself before he tumbled into the mud Lincoln muttered to under his breath, “A slip, but not a fall.”...
